Photography : Developing Your Eye! Day 10 – Architecture
“The most colorful thing in the world is black and white, it contains all colors and at the same time excludes all.”
Today is day ten, the last day of the ten days photography course and the theme for the day is Architecture/ Monochrome. I loved and enjoyed taking photos for each theme in the last ten days. It’s been a wonderful journey where I discovered a few great things about photography. Hopefully I’ll remember them, though with my poor memory I doubt that. Then again, I can always read and re-read these ten posts to jog my memory!
Today’s theme is my favorite which is monochrome. Monochrome in photography refers to images developed or executed in black and white or in varying tones of only one color.
About the image –
This photo is of an old and abandoned building which used to be a hotel (if I’m not mistaken) a few years back. From where I’m looking this building looks dark, gloomy and dismal. Yet there is a beauty to it which makes you think about those days when it was full of life around it.
I have a fondness for all things black and white. There is such a classic charm to it, you can never go wrong with it. This last photo is my favorite one out of the ten photos I published in the last ten posts.
Think about how black, white, gray, and the shades in between can interact in your frame in dynamic ways. As you compose your shot, look for sharp lines, distinct patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and very light and very dark colors.
